FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination on Sunday, saying he is the most electable candidate in the field.

“He’s the man that can carry the day,” Mrs. Brewer said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

What a sell-out. Brewer, like Haley, turns out to be more Pander Bear than Mama Grizzly.

Jan Brewer was Lt Gov under Janet Napolitano. Compared to Marxist Janet, Jan looked good. But she was considered squishy EXCEPT for gun control.

So, guns are here only really conservative trait. Other than that, she is a Romneyette.

I don’t think she had any choice, as we discussed yesterday. There’s a large contingent of Mormons in Arizona, and Bishop Romney instructs them how to vote.

I was hoping she would not endorse anyone, as she suggested earlier, but I think Bishop Romney’s thugs twisted her arm.

Hopefully the voters will see this for what it is, and not be influenced.

How much did Mitt donate to her campaign?

If nothing else, Mitt is proving how easy it is to buy off these so called “principled” Republicans. I hope folks remember this when Haley, Brewer, etc. are up for re-election.

I would doubt they outnumber the Protestants and Catholics. That argument doesn't make sense.

Yeah, regardless of whom she might have endorsed, it doesn’t impress me that she waited until a few days before the election, when she could pretty much make sure she went with the winner. If Santorum was well ahead, does anybody think she would have still endorsed Romney?

Of course she had a choice. She could have stood up for conservative principles over political expediency. But Brewer is no Ronald Reagan, nor is she a Sarah Palin.

Of course, she is now a sell out or an idiot or a dupe or stooge or a liberal because she endorses a candidate that many or most on Free Republic disagree with.

Now that’s just plain depressing. How far do the leftist tentacles go? Brewer was actively fighting Mitt’s cousins in the Administration and decides that a McCain-type “rebel” will be a solution? I expect her next step will be to run as a left-leaning “Independent”.

"Jan Brewer was Lt Gov under Janet Napolitano." Wow! An amazing fact. When did Arizona get a Lt. Gov.? Or maybe when did the abolish the post? Because they sure do NOT have one now and as near as I can tell they have never had a Lt. Gov.

Won’t help. Brewers endorsement will drive away as many as it will invite. Sheriff Arpaio is the most powerful endorsement in Arizona. Brewer, not so much.

This is an example of why Sarah Palin does not lend a formal endorsment. It is terribly disappointing to swaths of desporate
supporters.

However, it was down to the wire in Jan’s own home state, and she is found endorsing the polling leader. Not new, and AZ is no Florida in delegates, where there it would seem tasteful and more statesman like to weigh keeping one’s mouth shut.

This was likely just retail politics for Jan.

“Brewer previously served as Secretary of State of Arizona, from January 2003 until then-Governor Janet Napolitano resigned after being selected as Secretary of Homeland Security in January 2009. Brewer became Governor of Arizona as part of the line of succession, as determined by the Arizona constitution.”

No Lt Gov, but Jan was second in line to the more liberal Jan, who went to DC to screw up our national security.

A bit of political history:

” Speaking to attendees of the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Black and White Ball Saturday night at the downtown Phoenix Sheraton, Governor Jan Brewer refused to say whether or not she would sign state Senator Russell Pearce’s police state/anti-immigrant bill SB 1070. But she assured the crowd that she understood its opposition to the measure.

“In regards to Senate Bill 1070,” she stated, “I will tell you that I never make comment, like most governor’s throughout our country, before a bill reaches my desk. But I hear you, and I will assure you that I will do what I believe is the right thing so that everyone is treated fairly.”

Her statement prompted a quip from the following speaker, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, who asked the mostly Latino crowd, “I think what I just heard was a commitment to veto that bill, whatdya think?”

“Stephen Lemons of the Phoenix New Times points out that a recent Rasmussen poll shows Brewer “ahead of a wide field of contenders in the GOP gubernatorial primary” with 26 percent support. Given that two-thirds (67%) of Arizona’s GOP primary voters say that a candidate’s position on immigration is “very important” in determining how they will vote, Brewer’s decision on SB 1070 will certainly affect her comfortable lead.”

She wasn’t exactly at the front, leading the charge...but she also wanted to be the GOP nominee...

Can you imagine the posts if Palin endorsed a candidate?

"So much for integrity. "

"There went my respect for her."

"What a sell-out."

She's no conservative and never has been."

"I always knew she was a RINO."

can the protestants and catholics guarantee over 90% turnout for their members to vote in bloc? the mormons did to push CA's prop 8...they didnt need numbers, they had obedience

what do you think the lds turnout will be to hire their boy Romney?...not 16% like the national average take whatever the mormon numbers are and multiply them by 5 if its a cause their leaders espouse, unlike any other faith, if the 'call' comes they will answer as one body (more or less)

i'm an exmormon and i know of no one in my family or any other church member who isnt lockstep behind Romney...not getting into a faith discussion, just statistics

The marching orders are in. The elite want Romney. And those left to vote in the Primaries better damn well pay attention.

And if this thing goes to Romney, lay the blame squarely on Gingrich.

I no longer have any respect for my governor, McDonnell. A few weeks ago I saw him on Fox, shilling for Romney, and I saw him fudge the truth for Willard and squirm while doing so. He was asked if he agreed with Romney that Newt resigned in disgrace. McDonnell shifted around a little, and wouldn't look the interviewer (I think it was Greta) in the eye as he mumbled, "Well, he did resign." Disgusting.

On another note, I don't want to post a vanity about it, but I'm wondering if anyone is talking about Ann Coulter's unbelievable lie on Fox & Friends today. She said that, even when pushed to do so, Romney has refused to attack his "fellow conservatives." OMG.
